For the past decade, consumers have depended on the automotive safety systems manufactured by Elesys North America Inc. (www.elesys-na.com). In a recent ceremony, the company formalized a training partnership with Georgia Quick Start and Gwinnett Technical College.
Headquartered in Suwanee, Ga., with a technical center located in Dublin, Ohio, Elesys provides a full range of safety systems to the automotive industry, including passive safety systems, such as advanced airbag sensors, passenger sensing, detection and occupant classification systems, and active safety systems, such as vehicle stability control, intelligent braking and adaptive cruise control.
Quick Start is Georgia’s internationally acclaimed economic development program that provides customized workforce training at no cost to qualified new, expanding and existing businesses in Georgia. Since 1967, Quick Start has trained more than 600,000 employees through 5,100 projects with a broad range of industries.
The Quick Start training agreement was developed based on a Project Study that was conducted at Elesys in Suwanee, Ga. The agreement is based on the company’s commitment to provide approximately 25 new jobs for Georgians in the Gwinnett area. Quick Start will be designing and developing training material, as well as providing instructors, for the classes.
The training program involves three distinct partners: Elesys North America Inc., Gwinnett Technical College and Quick Start. Each partner will be responsible for the successful completion of this program. The partnership will not end when the Quick Start training is completed. Gwinnett Tech will be available to assist Elesys with ongoing training programs.
